Duties include:

  • Incrementally create the connective links, software components and data integrations that enable the automated construction of Digital Threads by which users can navigate the broad spectrum of digital processes and artifacts managed by the DEE.
  • Apply proven enterprise information management (EIM) approaches, user experience design and Agile software engineering
  • Design and construct digital threads and supporting software that will enable the building of collaboration workflows and dashboards that enable teams to facilitate and accelerate processes, work collaboratively, and view progress at that moment.
